Seriously, how do I get myself motivated to blog when I have this little poopface next to me?

What I wouldnt give to curl up right now and sleep all day!

Today was my first monday back to work in two weeks, sadface. I was lucky and only had to deal with 4 day workweeks for the past two weeks because of the holidays. A full workweek ahead?! Oh the horror!

I’ve found a breakfast that can actually make me look forward to waking up, amazingness.

I’ve only just begun my obsession with greek yogurt. This is my favorite flavor by FAR. I always thought i’d be more impartial towards the 2% flavors since I didnt feel the 0% truly matched up to flavor and creamyness but oh gosh. This one is too good for words. I crush up mini nillas into mine…although I ran out now, so almonds it is from now on. YUM!

I saw a tweet go out from Runners World today about what intimidates us most about running, and it really got me thinking.

I’ve been running for almost 4 years this September now and what a journey its been…

As you all know, i’m gearing up to sign up for my first marathon and i’m gonna admit something to you…i’m scared to death.

I’m sure I could’ve signed up last year but truth is, I chickened out. I was too scared of not being able to finish and of getting injured during training. The most intimidating part of running to me is letting myself down. I know i’m not the fastest runner out there (not even by a long-shot) but I’ve prided myself on being dedicated to the sport. A lot of my perseverance has to do with the fact that running is my form of therapy. I need to face my fears of disappointing myself and take this next step…I think it will be far more disappointing to hold myself back rather then take this chance. If I can lose 200 pounds, I should be able to run a marathon right? I need to train smart and I know deep down it will work out. I need to get this off my bucket list and turn this into reality! 🙂

That being said, today’s workout included 7 speedy miles on the treadmill. I felt pretty strong…not much issue with my knee today.

Work was over before I knew it, thank gosh. I was excited to get the car magnets I had ordered in the mail:

Gotta show some runners pride 🙂 I cant wait until the day I can put a 26.2 magnet on my car too.

Dinner was thrown together pretty quickly, I roasted some butternut squash:

I was more in a snacky mood tonight, I grazed a little too much when I got home so I ended up just making myself a small cheese plate. It included a big chunk of brie from the wheel I picked up at costco over the weekend 😉

Dont you worry, you know I’m going to have some ice cream later on to round out my day.

Tell me…

If you are a runner, what intimidates you about running…or for those non-runners, what intimidates you physical fitness wise?

Do you have a favorite yogurt flavor?

Do you have any fun magnets or stickers on your car?
